Phantom of the Opera Row H Seats 101-102 thoughts?
Hi, looking for some advise on Phantom of the Opera orchestra Row H Seats 101-102 are? Are they too close? Too left? Close to overhang?

Sorry, I forgot to mention this is in the Majestic theater!

Seriously? These are priority seats on the aisle just in front of he orchestra overhang. I'm not sure an seats would be better. Not to be snarky, but this almost sounds like a brag "look at the fantastic seats we got".

No, just trying to get insight from someone whose been to this theater. I read a lot of posts online and many mentioned the overhang being very close to Rows H on-wards, which seems to disrupt the view. That coupled with the seats being on the aisle, wasn't sure if its worth the $$.

The overhang of the mezzanine is straight above you, slightly behind. It is NOT an issue.
From someone who hates sitting under the overhang.

Some theatres charge MORE for aisle seats. Do you prefer people close to you on both sides? Aisle seats are the best. You can even extend your legs into the aisle. Relax -- you couldn't get better seats in this theatre for this show if you had your choice of all.

Appreciate it! It is this or the front mezzanine row D seats 103-104. Apparently those are suppose to give a real holistic view of the show.

Someone's pulling your leg. I love front row mezzanine seats, but fourth row mezzanine over those aisle seats mid orchestra? Trust me. Someone's joking with you.

I'm clueless though what a "holistic view" even means.
